longer have world class leadership. but those watching don't know yet if we can sift out of the small politics of personal gain and instead of jackying for position or advantage do the right thing. not for ourselves, not against the mayor, but for the institution of the city of toronto and its government upon which so many of our citizens depend. if we retreat behind legalese and say that no law has been broken, no wrong has been done, we miss the point made with such urgency around every dinner table because it is known so clearly in every parent's worrying heart that the values that matter most in forging the life of an individual or of a city come not from the law and justice but from clear and consistent expressions of what is write and wrong. when presented with the choice of doing the right. >> that is toronto council mann denzil minnan-wong speaking now at this council meeting which is ahead of a motion to get the mayor, rob ford,ing to step aside to deal with his "personal problems." the mayor saying he's not going to do any such thing. paula newton is standing by to talk abou

believe there is clearly going to be flooding. they know there's going to be extensive damage but don't know the just how widespread this damage is. this super typhoon was huge spread across a very significant amount of area. they don't know what the damage on the ground is. the communications are down. this is one of the first things that went when the super typhoon hit. also, there have been blackouts across the country. many areas have seen the electricity pylons fall and roads being blocked because the serious winds have buffeted these trees and they've block odd the road. so at first light, that's one of the first jobs that some of the military are going to have to do to try to clear the roads so they can get to the areas where people may have been quite badly affected. we understand that at first light, as well, the military going up into the air so they can try and get an aerial view of exactly what the damage is. and then at that point, they can figure out which parts are worst hit and which parts need the immediate help of food, water and medicine. suzanne? >> help us underst

people, he said, don't trust -- they don't trust the white house anymore to make this administrative fix. that was interesting for a lot of reasons but mostly because he sees the polling, just like everybody else does, that the president's polling is dipping in a lot of areas but mostly, most concerning, in the area of trust and character. and i think that is a big reason why tomorrow, even though democrats want the administration to do this administratively, they want to do it without the need of a bill to pass congress, go to the president's desk, they are still going to offer an alternative on the floor of the house of representatives tomorrow so that democrats can go back to their constituents -- >> hold on. here's the president. >> today i want to update the american people on our efforts to implement and improve the affordable care act and i'll take a couple of your questions. before i do, i want to say a few words about the tragedy that's unfolded in the philippines. over the past few days, i think all of us have been shaken by the images of the devastation brought by the typhoon
some serious questions, constitutional questions. i have to tell you, i don't think this is the most compelling argument. the fact is, you have a law here. this does seem to contradict it. the president's claiming the right and this is the second time he's done it with the aca, claeping the right to the effectively take parts offline, to grant something that's not there. in constitutional term, that's called the dispensing power, once called the royal prerogative. that was rejected in our system that when you have legislation, the president does have the right to have discretion in the enforcement. but he can't rewrite the law. he can't effectively change it. so congress probably has a stronger argument on this issue. >> what about the states in the situation? we've got examples, washington state, for instance, their insurance commissioner said the state's not going to go along with the president's request here to extend canceled policies for another year. so if the states don't cooperate with him, is this worth anything, this promise? >> i have the same thought because i'm not too s
have a new thanksgiving ritual. most americans don't want any part of it. >> here's the polling numbers. recent university of connecticut poll shows, 93% of respondents don't care who's open. they say they will not be out there today looking for deals. and nick valencia at the kmart outside atlanta, which is obviously open. what's going on? doesn't look too bad behind you. >> hope you didn't break in. it is open? >> reporter: happy thanksgiving, hala and michael. not bad right now. 5:00 this morning, it was frigid outside, 30 people lined up, felt like 17 degrees. didn't stop crowds from forming. door busters, one guy here at 11:00 p.m. last night. i asked, why are you putting yourself through this? he said he's here for the deals. >> reporter: black friday has morphed into black thursday. kmart, one of a handful of retailers, open for business on thanksgiving. ready for it? >> i think so, yeah. yeah, we're excited about it. >> reporter: for those who think it's something new, kmart has been doing this over 20 years. more retailers followed suit, and that's not coincidence. >> shoppers
is because you don't want to tip the balance of the court and it's not fair. so that is what they're voting on right now, is an attempt to get one of the judges on that bench. and this is really kind of a show, if you will, in order to get to the point where democrats can likely later today hold the vote to change the rules to make it impossible for republicans to do what they're doing now, which is have a 60-vote threshold to block the nomination and bring it down to 51 simple majority. >> you mentioned three vacancies. am i wrong in thinking there's 100 judicial vacancies at moment in this is about the democrats, would say, the republicans blocking every appointment that the government wants to make? >> reporter: that's right. and republicans argue, and they did argue, mitch mcconnell did on the senate floor, they have passed over 200 of the president's nominees and only defeated less than handful. that doesn't peek to how many are still stuck on the calendar. to be honest, you can look at the numbers and see in them what you want, if you are a democrat or a republican looking at, you kno

car insurance? i don't know, eight, ten years. i couldn't tell you but things were a lot less expensive back then. if you're 50 or over you should take a new look at your auto insurance. you may be overpaying. actually that makes a lot of sense. old policy. old rates. and thanks to your experience behind the wheel, you might save $395 by switching to the aarp auto insurance program from the hartford. plus, you'll get benefits that reward your driving record, like our promise that you won't be dropped. wait, you won't drop me? seriously? that's right, you won't be dropped. and, if you know anyone who's been dropped by their insurance company, you know that's a hassle you don't need. especially these days. plus you'll get recovercare, which helps you pay for everyday needs like house cleaning, lawn care and pet services if you're injured in an accident. so my auto insurance is going to help pay the house cleaning if i'm injured? did you say lawn care? and if i can't walk my dog, they'll help me pay someone to do it for me? call the number on your screen to switch to the aarp aut
that an extraordinary amount of money. they say it wasn't fraud, they don't deny they were putting money on the cards but say lawson was aware of it and also they weren't spending it all on themselves to fund this lavish lifestyle alleged. but there's this fundamental piece of evidence which refers to drugs. it is an e-mail from charles saatchi september last month to nigella lawson. it was a personal e-mail. he says he was bereft that it became public but it came through her side. in this he writes to her, of course now the grillos will get off on the basis that you were so off your head on drugs, you allows the sisters to spend whatever they liked and yes, i believe every word that the grillos have said who after all only stole money and they're alleging that she had a drug habit, nigella lawson which went back for the whole ten years of the marriage and they hid it. she hid it from charles saatchi. >> all right. so max, you know, what about the trial itself? are we now likely to hear from nigella? >> we are expecting to hear from her during this trial. probably next week. we can't confirm exact de
healthy, normal and was fairly articulate, i don't know what the next step would have or could have been for the police beyond that. other than to call the parents back and say we checked on him and he's fine. an then he's doing fine and normal. just depressed or upset. you know, like many people often are. i don't know if there was anything in the messages to tell the police he had an access to an assault rifle or whether it was his rifle or someone else's and he was capable of using the type of weaponry with multiple magazines and bullets. but it's highly speculative to say that the police could have stopped this thing. they could have got tln early and talked to him and thought he was okay. and the next day gn to the airport, you just don't know. >> i want to tell you, attorney general eric holder just weighed in on the l.a.x. shooting. i want you to listen to what he said. >> close-up of the tsa is to insure that people can board planes safely. take flights safely. the responsibility for protecting airport security is not a tsa function. but something that i think we need to certainl
? it is a point of law, isn't it? i don't think they've been charged yet, have they? >> it does seem surprising, michael. but i think it's because those two were arrest on suspicion of being involved in forced labor and human trafficking, but the police now don't seem to be able to quite put their finger on what they should charge them with. under british law, you have to charge someone within 36 hours or release them on bail. they've been released on bail. the police are now saying they don't think this comes under a category of domestic slavery or of human trafficking. in fact, they're saying this is like something we've never seen before. we're trying to unravel what happened to these women over the last three decades. it wasn't sexual abuse but it was a very, very complex picture of emotional and psychological abuse that they went through. although they've let these two out on bail and they say there will weren't any other people involved, they didn't have any accomplices, they don't believe this to be part of a broader human trafficking ring, at the same time, they have their entire human
cnn severe weather jacket on. chad meyers hasn't donned the jacket yet. what can people expect as it imcoulds to move? >> i don't think people expected a storm to roll through dallas in november. that's part of the problem. another problem is let's say there's 300 flights cancelled. i don't have a number. 150 people on each plane, that's 4,500 people now that have to find another plane with seats on it. these seats are jammed. i've been trying to fly around the country to go to different stories like miami and vegas. there's one, two, seven seats open on any flight. have you 4,000 people trying to get on seven seats and it's going to be -- if it's starting on monday and we have tuesday is the worst day and then wednesday and thursday is the big travel day, you just plan on packing your patience and plan on taking the money that the airlines may give you for not sitting in that seat because there's going to be a lot of bumped people i'm afraid. here's the deal with tuesday. this is what i'm afraid of. the models always warm up the air and they think it's going to rain and it rai
